Providing rescue coverage ranging from confined space, high angle and water rescue support is our specialization. For almost thirty years, we have provided competent rescue technicians into industries such as: nuclear, refining, pharmaceutical and construction. Our rescue technicians are fully trained emergency response personnel, all with qualifications to perform rescue and provide medical treatment as necessary. To ensure competency, Med-Tex performs regular site inspections of our personnel and provides extensive training of technicians on similar configurations of spaces encountered on our projects. We can also assist with rescue pre-plan development and technical rescue team training.
Employees wearing supplied air respirators (such as those in an Immediately Dangerous to Life and Health “IDLH” environment), must be supported by a rescuer with the qualifications and equipment to do so. Med-Tex Services can provide personnel to offer stand-by services for these occasions. Pre-turn around activities, tank repair and other maintenance work frequently present these kinds of exposures. Medical clearance for respirators fit testing, training and related services are also available!
Meeting appropriate response times for employees on job sites can be challenging especially for those in workplaces where serious accidents such as those involving falls, suffocation, electrocution, or amputation are possible. To help meet the intent of medical care being in reasonable proximity to employees, Med-Tex Services can staff an on-site medical/first aid station to help provide immediate care to employees and attempt to minimize the severity of an injury. Med-Tex Services can also assist with medical clearance and fit testing for respirators or substance abuse screening in these projects if desired. For your own employees, Med-Tex Services can offer First Aid/CPR and AED training at our location or yours.
Respirator medical clearance, (qualitative or quantitative) fit testing, program development and training are all key components of the 29 CFR 1910.134 Respiratory Protection Standard.
